Australian Radio Network (ARN) has announced that Jack Post will join The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show when it debuts on Monday 4 June.
Also known as “Cacklin’ Jack” from the Hamish & Andy show which aired on Southern Cross Austereo’s Hit Network, Post (pictured above, right) will take on the role of producer and sidekick for The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show.
For the past 10 years Jack has worked on creative and production for the Hamish & Andy show and has also worked on the Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year TV series.
The radio stalwart, who began his career in radio at the age of 15 as an announcer on Melbourne’s community radio station SYN FM, has most recently been working with Hamish Blake and Andy Lee on their podcast.
“I’m excited to continue executing my simple career strategy: only work with radio’s most talented presenters and see how far their success can carry you,” Post said.
“I’ve been a fan of Christian’s show for a long time and I can’t wait to see how Melbourne embraces him.”
Helping O’Connell launch his new Melbourne breakfast show will be his Absolute Radio producer and friend Nick Daly.
In an uncanny coincidence, it was exactly six years ago today that O’Connell was involved in another world first when he teamed up with Hamish & Andy to simulcast his radio show in Britain and Australia.
